Always one to do things his own way, Mac DeMarco has shared his own take on a Christmas classic… And shared it on Boxing Day.
Putting his own spin on the Bing Crosby/Irving Berlin Christmas that is White Christmas, Mac has added a dollar sign and a Santa hat-wearing-Jar Jar Binks photo, and has this week shared a new cover of White Christma$.
The significance of the Jar Jar Binks photo comes from his recent review of the latest Star Wars movie, and the cover is very, very him. Slow and chilled out, it’s dreamy in it’s delivery and soft and gentle, exactly what you want to hear nursing a Christmas hangover. Suitably Mac, he slows things down to a nice, leisurely pace here, and it has definitely earned a spot on my family Christmas playlist for next year.
While it’s uncertain if this new track will make it’s way into his live setlist, Australian Mac DeMarco fans have just a few days left before they can catch the man in action at Falls Festival and Southbound Festival, as well as a few highly sought-after sideshows. Check the dates below, and wrap your ears around White Christma$ in all it’s Mac glory.
